VeggieTales: Celery Night Fever DVD Review + Giveaway 8/18 US/CAN

Honestly, this is the first time my daughters heard about VeggieTales. They watch lots of educational shows but I'm not sure why I haven''t watched the VeggieTales before, considering the vegetable characters look super cute.

Here is something about the movie:

"In Celery Night Fever, the retro funkadelic sights and sounds of polyester leisure suits and disco balls take center stage – along with a timeless message of friendship and forgiveness. Actor Terry Crews provides the voice of Bruce Onion, a nefarious real-estate developer who plans to turn the serene, green Celery Park into a parking lot.  His unsavory scheme spurs Laura Carrot and Junior Asparagus to enact a bold plan: reuniting the long-lost ’70s band The Groovy Brothers to play at a fund-raising concert. The problem is, The Groovy Brothers haven’t spoken to each other in decades, and the members have little interest in getting back together.  Their long-simmering feud spills over to affect Laura and Junior.  It’s not just Celery Park that’s in jeopardy – if best friends can’t learn to forgive each other and accept each other’s faults, the veggies might lose their cherished community gathering spot. Celery Night Fever features six original songs, including a rousing number from Bruce Onion, showcasing the musical side of Terry Crews. Celery Night Fever debuts Aug. 5 exclusively on DVD."

When I received the VeggieTales Celery Night Fever DVD, my daughters couldn't wait to watch it. Similar to other new cartoon shows and movies they watch, I joined them and watched the movie myself. First of all, I was surprised when I learned that Bruce Onion was voiced over by Terry Crews. I remember him as the super funny guy at White Chicks, one of the best movies that made me laugh. :) Okay so going back to the VeggieTales Celery Night Fever, my daughters and I watched the movie without hubby because they couldn't wait for their dad to come home. The characters were so cute and I asked my daughters if they can identify which vegetable each character is. They were able to identify some of the common vegetables they see and I love how focused they were while they were watching the movie.

I always ask them if they learned something in every movie we watch together and after watching the VeggieTales: Celery Night Fever, my 6 year old daughter proudly said that you should learn how to forgive just like when she gets angry at her 3 year old sister, she should forgive her because it's the right thing.

I am proud and amazed that my 6 year old daughter understood the moral of the movie. My 3 year old daughter didn't really catch the lesson but she loved the characters. Both of them enjoyed the veggie characters as well as the catchy songs in the movie.

Here is a short clip of the movie:
